"Authentic masterpieces are the title-track and "And Thou Art Dead As Young As Fair". An excellent and innovative musical taste that surfaces immediately from the very first notes, and a visionary art that captures and inebriates, a fascination that does not vanish to the first lights of dawn. Flares that must be followed in the future too..." - Francesco Gentile - twilight-zone.it
"Certainly a special and succeeded album, with a nice mixture of ambient and classical sounds. Perhaps a release on Cold Meat in the future?" - Funprox
"Concluding, I can only say that people who like ambient, filmish and dark, haunting and slightly twisted, will love this album. If you're not into that kind of music, I can imagine this will be quite hard to get into. It is not a disc to play in the background, it should be listened to with attention." - Stefan Koopmanschap, electronicmusicworld.com

This is one of the best dark ambient albums I've heard in some time! The sounds are haunting and enveloping, both cold and inviting at the same time.
The Dead Hours' version of "Swing Low, Sweet Chariot" is one of the most beautiful pieces of music I've heard since Frolic's "Skin." It will be going on repeat shortly.
